Would you please Create an original thread based on all three stories (ARABY, EVELINE, Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” by Joyce Carol Oates); and use AT least two of the terms from the “Fictional Device” and two “Elements of Fiction” lists in your original thread. The stories are attached. Thank you!

Irony: the use of words being used in direct opposition to the literal meaning (Think of Chris Farley’s use of finger quotes) or a stark contrast between what is expected to occur and what actually transpires
Satire: the use of sarcasm, irony, or parody to poke fun at and critique vice or folly (e.g. The Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, political cartoons)
